How Is This For Funky?

Posted in Fun, Life, Music with tags , , , , , , , , , , on November 24, 2008 by victorbiola

When researching music and looking through feedback for a previous post <Vote For Your Favourite Seductive Song> I stumbled over this jewel of a late 70s funky number: Shame by Evelyn King aka Evelyn Champagne King.

evelyn-king-smooth-talkThere are some seriously good tracks to come by in the late 70s, but every now and then you know that you have heard something special. This is one of the best tracks I have heard in a long time.

Evelyn King is very natural in her performance, her voice is crisp and sensual and the beat is funky and with a great guitarre tune to accompany it. Click below to hear it for yourself.

Life is full of surprises and I have just learnt that Shame is also on the soundtrack of the Rock City game Vice City (which is part of the Grand Theft Auto series). If you enjoy your late 70s and early 80s Soul / Funk, then you should check this hot site out: http://www.vicecityradio.com/

Your comments and feedback are as always welcome!

Please check The Soul of Amsterdam for excellent photos of musicians.

Beautiful Seduction

Posted in Fun, Life with tags , , , , , , , on November 11, 2008 by victorbiola

It is always interesting to see how individuals differ, yet how strongly we are being influenced by the media. A previous post is asking viewers and readers to submit their favourite seductive song.

See: Vote For Your Favourite Seductive Song

Everyone has a right to an opinion; just funny to see how far we do differ on the topic. Some people seem to mistake the art of seduction with chopping meat up for the bbq.

beautiful-seduction22

How we are worlds apart in our headspaces and souls… There is a big difference between eating out of a tin or just placing food on a plate or actually arranging a meal on a plate, beautifully presented, deliciously placed. Making an effort can be effortless as not making an effort. Going out of your way will bring you past new ideas and thoughts. By making a difference you show that you care. That is seductive.

I would liken seductive, sensual, enticing to a person unwrapping a desert, slowly with anticipation while listening to the sound of the unwrapping…

The art of seduction is a process of encounters, slight touches of skin, as if accidental, a process of appreciation. Seduction is as well about respect, respect for the moment, yourself and the opposite. Seduction is beauty in itself, it is flirtatious…

beautiful-seduction21

Lately I have heard friends complaining about encounters where the opposite was to obsessed by dirty talk and being rough, actually being treated that way. I feel that there is a place for that and where two people with the capacity to decide make a decision to do something together, then it is fine. It just gets so boring when you feel that being desensitised is the new fashion.

I could go on about it and also speak about the degradation of good film scripts, with most movies produced using swear words and coarse language. What happened to the good scripts?

I guess the fact that dirty talk and swearing has reached the main stream is what makes it so boring and main stream! Seduction is back! ‘It is not what I see that excites me, but what remains hidden.’ Victor Biola (someone will claim it to be said by someone before me…)

Well, that is what Victor Biola thinks…

Comments, responses and thoughts are very welcome

Music is a very powerful medium. I am sure you have felt the power of a song before, that made you travel back in time and placed you in a space and time that was very meaningful to you.

I have had that experience many times, one song put me back 20 years or so and I was so clearly in that room that I could see and hear things around me. Music has many layers and can be very emotional to us. Music can also deepen an experience or alter our emotional state.

Uh La La! Las Chicas Me Gustan!

Posted in Fun, Life with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on October 27, 2008 by victorbiola

The internet is a funny place and like our fantasies and the ‘real’ world we find it all. You just need to search for it. The www is filled with our passions, hobbies, our darkest desires and fantasies to a range of poetic thoughts and an abundance of excellent and more often useless and incorrect information.

We hear  of stories of people being very naive and getting ripped off as the result of a internet scam. It is sad that it happens, but maybe you just have to be smart about things. It is like evolution, you need to smarten up and learn to walk the walk and talk the talk.

Anyway, there are many entertaining and funny things on the internet to be found and today I would like to feature two Latino girls from LA, Yasmin and Crash and their quirky Las Chicas project (actually The Chicas Project). I think they are seriously cute and quite funny, but judge yourself.

Anyway, they have a nice vid on graffiti in LA, that you should have a look at. Las Chicas Project
